Quest Software, a global systems

The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners
for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of
customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a
set of more than 2,900 entries from 115 countries worldwide. Quest was
recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services based on
Microsoft technologies to Health customers, demonstrating thought
leadership in the industry.

“Being recognized as a 2019 Microsoft Health Partner of the Year Award
Finalist is a validating proof-point that Quest continues to be an
industry leader in providing solutions that help healthcare
organizations migrate, manage and secure their Microsoft environment,”
said Michael Tweddle, president and GM, Quest Microsoft
Platform Management business
. “We are proud of our achievement and
look forward to continued success with Microsoft and in helping
organizations continue to innovate with their Microsoft platform

Quest has a long, successful history in providing healthcare
organizations with the tools to manage and secure their Microsoft
environment. Few industries face as many IT challenges as healthcare.
With mergers and acquisitions (M&A) rapidly occurring and cloud adoption
projected to triple from 2015 to 2020, IT departments must balance
continuous IT modernization and consolidation with meeting HIPAA
compliance, increasing security requirements and rolling out electronic
health record (EHR) software. Quest’s healthcare
software solutions
have helped healthcare providers, hospitals and
insurers of all sizes and across the globe easily migrate, manage and
secure Office 365, AD, Azure AD, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and

Quest healthcare customer Avera
recently updated its AD infrastructure to prepare for digital
transformation while delivering the highest level of patient care. The
healthcare provider consolidated four AD forests into one to simplify
the migration to Azure and Office 365. According to Curtis Mavity,
Senior Systems Engineer at Avera Health, “Trying to plan and migrate
multiple domains and forests into one Azure tenant would have been a
nightmare if we didn’t modernize AD first with Quest migration
solutions.” Avera completed its AD consolidation nearly twice as fast as
expected, and with zero impact on end users and zero data loss, ensuring
no disruption to patient care. And Avera’s AD modernization accelerated
Azure and Office 365 adoption because it reduced IT management costs,
simplified on-prem to cloud synchronization and streamlined O365 license
purchasing and provisioning.

“It’s an honor to recognize finalists and winners of the Microsoft 2019
Partner of the Year Awards,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice
President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. “These companies are
